    Phase is a term used in wave optics to describe the relative position or state of two waves or parts of a wave. The phase of a wave refers to the position of the wave at a given point in time, as well as the position of the wave relative to another wave or point of reference. In other words, the phase of a wave describes the stage of the wave cycle at a particular moment. This is important in understanding how waves interfere with each other and how they create patterns, such as constructive and destructive interference.
